You can try to change the values inside your Autounattend.xml file like this:


<DiskConfiguration>
<WillShowUI>OnError</WillShowUI>
<Disk wcm:action="add">
<DiskID>0</DiskID>
<WillWipeDisk>true</WillWipeDisk>
<CreatePartitions>
<CreatePartition wcm:action="add">
<!-- Create the system partition-->
<Order>1</Order>
<Type>Primary</Type>
<Size>100</Size>
</CreatePartition>
<!-- Create the Windows partition and fill the rest of the hard disk -->
<CreatePartition wcm:action="add">
<Order>2</Order>
<Type>Primary</Type>
<Extend>true</Extend>
</CreatePartition>
</CreatePartitions>
<ModifyPartitions>
<!-- Modify the system partition-->
<ModifyPartition wcm:action="modify">
<Order>1</Order>
<PartitionID>1</PartitionID>
<Format>NTFS</Format>
<Label>System</Label>
</ModifyPartition>
<!-- Modify the Windows partition -->
<ModifyPartition wcm:action="modify">
<Order>2</Order>
<PartitionID>2</PartitionID>
<Format>NTFS</Format>
<Label>Windows</Label>
<Letter>C</Letter>
</ModifyPartition>
</ModifyPartitions>
</Disk>
<Disk wcm:action="add">
<DiskID>1</DiskID>
<WillWipeDisk>true</WillWipeDisk>
<CreatePartitions>
<!-- Create a data partition and fill the rest of the hard disk -->
<CreatePartition wcm:action="add">
<Order>1</Order>
<Type>Primary</Type>
<Extend>true</Extend>
</CreatePartition>
</CreatePartitions>
<ModifyPartitions>
<!-- Modify the system partition-->
<ModifyPartition wcm:action="modify">
<Order>1</Order>
<PartitionID>1</PartitionID>
<Format>NTFS</Format>
<Label>Data</Label>
<Letter>E</Letter>
</ModifyPartition>
</ModifyPartitions>
</Disk>
</DiskConfiguration>

*Edit: It's needed to take care with these setttings and check the HDD order sequence inside the BIOS first!

You need also to add:


<ImageInstall>
<OSImage>
<InstallFrom>
<MetaData wcm:action="add">
<Key>/IMAGE/NAME</Key>
<Value>Windows 7 PROFESSIONAL</Value>
</MetaData>
</InstallFrom>
<InstallTo>
<DiskID>0</DiskID>
<PartitionID>2</PartitionID>
</InstallTo>
<WillShowUI>OnError</WillShowUI>
<InstallToAvailablePartition>false</InstallToAvailablePartition>
</OSImage>
</ImageInstall>

You can also remove the last line, or change manually the correct path:


<cpi:offlineImage cpi:source="wim:c:/users/jake.hardy/desktop/en_windows_7_professional_x64_dvd_x15-65805(1)/sources/install.wim#Windows 7 PROFESSIONAL" xmlns:cpi="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:cpi" />

Example mine :


<cpi:offlineImage cpi:source="wim:c:/Win7_SP1/sources/install.wim#Windows 7 ULTIMATE" xmlns:cpi="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:cpi" />

To avoid errors check your file with WSIM.

Yes that was an easy one. Most the time you have to look at setupact.log or in one of the sub folders if it makes it into actually installing. I've had errors in setuperr.log that are not the actual error and mean nothing
